Auckland Pride Parade 2018

Last night I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Auckland Pride Parade 2018, walking with the Glitter Squad Celebrants. We were there to celebrate the fact that #loveislove, express our passion to #marryallthepeople, and witness #vicsinenvy2k18 get married DURING THE PARADE. Celebrant Laura Giddey made things official between Victoria and Sinead, standing under a floral arch on the back of our float, as thousands of spectators cheered them on. It was an Australasian first – congratulations to them! Mrs + Mrs Envy! Just beautiful.

I was especially proud to be walking alongside my husband and two children, Beau and Georgie, in the parade. For my little ones – and for all the other little ones out there – it makes me #prouderthanever that they will be growing up in a country where, to them, love has always been love. They won’t necessarily recognise #samesexmarriage…. because, to them, it will always have been just #marriage.

#lovewins, always.

Happy pride, everyone!
